Commander? I Barely Know Her! (Happy Birthday Alicia)

Nearly eight (!!) months ago the conversation on H50Sardonic turned to Star Trek and resulted in my first ever only fandom collage mashup, “The Mission is the Man.” Comparisons of McG to Captain Picard segued into comparisons of McG and Commander Riker — and — well, eight months later, here we are. Alicia, I hope you have a happy birthday & a wonderful year. You’re a dear friend and a quality human being and I’m lucky to know you. I hope you enjoy this. I call it…

Los Dos Comandantes, I mean Les Deux Commandants, I mean The Two Commanders… No really, I don’t, this doesn’t have a title…

They’ll look over the table & chat during their meal
Cover their mouths to hide how they feel
Make eyes at whoever – whatever’s – around
Flex their long legs from so far off the ground
They fire their weapons at bad guys galore
But love all their friends on that you can be sure
They look up to others when they need assistance
But will look down on you too if they perceive resistance
Chin hands of amusement when they like what they see
And adorable smiles when their moments are free
They care for others in sickness & health
Eyebrows! Now I’m rhyming in spite of myself …

Now the poem is done & the pictures are here-
All for Alicia, Happy Birthday My Dear!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALICIA!

LET’S PARTY!

  1. Very clever, Steph ๐Ÿ™‚ What an amazing job you’ve done with the connections between the two characters in pictures. Awesome!

  2. Well done, Steph! My fave…the tall and short Star Trek dudes and Steve and little Danny. (Clearly I’m not a Star Trek fan, or I would know their names.)

    Happy Birthday, Alicia!

  3. Wow, Steph, this is great. The expressions are uncannily close. Love the poem.
    They all like a cigar!

  4. WOWOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!! (and also, wow was that really EIGHT MONTHS AGO???)

    OMG! Steph, I LOVE this!! I really have a type don’t I? ๐Ÿ˜€ They are SO alike. Superb pic choices! (I especially love that in the H50 versions of the Troi/Riker pics, the role of Riker’s future wife is played by… Danny Williams!)

    (Honourable mention for Picard’s expression in the cigar pic. Priceless!)

    The Two Commanders *sigh* I never thought about it before, but Riker actually outranks McG, doesn’t he? and is it bad or good that I can identify at least five of the episodes the TNG pics were taken from? ๐Ÿ™‚

    “Make eyes at whoever โ€“ whateverโ€™s โ€“ around” <– your poem is awesome, but this is my favourite line. SO TRUE!!!

    Steph, thank you thank you thank you for making this for me. You are a lovely, wonderful person and I'm so privileged to be able to call you a friend.

    Now I'm going to spend as much of the day as I can get away with just… gazing… at this. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Happy birthday, Alicia! This is great, I was a big fan of Riker, as much as I am of McG right now, so thanks for reminding me of my childhood in rainy afternoon here in Croatia. I hope you don’t mind, I just HAVE to post a link to this on Peter Lenkov’s twitter and to DDK’s Facebook page.

  6. Great collection Steph ๐Ÿ™‚ I canยดt remember much of Star Trek anymore, but I think my favorite character was the android (whoยดs name I have though forgotten). Also I was always amazed by that beautiful woman, was she a doctor? Anyway, her eyes were gorgeous.

  7. First: HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALICIA! (I won’t stop until I’ve written this on every post!) *kisses*
    Second: STEPHANIEJANE YOU ARE SUPERSPECTACULAR! LOVE THIS SO MUCH!
    Third: As a TNG fan, I’m wondering how the heck I missed this entire conversation on Sardonic? I just read through the whole thing and would have had so many things to say, but it was all new to me?!? What? How? Then I looked at the dates… and it seems that you DO miss things when you go on holiday to a country without wifi ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • DARN YOU CUBA! ๐Ÿ˜† This was a fun thing to make, started with a fun selection of Riker pics, found McG ones to match. We will all have to have a big Star Trek pow-wow one day.

      LOVE YOU TOO MOMO!!!

      • Comic-Con! It HAS to happen!

        We never did have a ‘favourite episodes’ discussion on your ‘The Mission Is The Man’ post, did we? I think I started trying to make a list and short-circuited because I have TOO MANY FAVOURITES! Maybe we should do that now that Momo has found this discussion!

  8. Bravo, babe! Lovely and clever!

    And a Happy Birthday to you, Alicia! #lovelovelove

  9. That’s AWESOME! Well done. I’m pretty sure PL would get a big kick out of that.

  10. I love love having so many reasons to see pics of McG and with bonus Picard pics even better. (Enjoy Jean Luc for totally different reasons though -sorry captain). As for Riker, I always thought he walked like he had a stick up his butt, so I’ll pass on him, Troi can have him ๐Ÿ™‚ or Alicia. Great job JK/FC.
